Largest U.S. ILEC continues to roll out NHC Communications' ControlPoint(TM) solutions for its network-automation plan with additional $4 million in orders.

NHC Communications Inc. , the first vendor to ship solutions in the automated main distribution frame market, announces that it has received an order from one of its North Eastern U.S. Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers (ILEC), customer No. 2, to ship additional units of its ControlPoint(TM) solutions valued at $4.4 million.

To date, NHC has fulfilled close to half of the orders totalling $16.3 million received from the ILEC, customer No. 2, since September 2002. Those orders are part of this customer's 2002 budget for the ControlPoint(TM) solutions.

The new set of orders from this ILEC includes two interlinked ControlPoint(TM) CP 5400 solutions to be installed in a larger unmanned central office to manage over 5,000 telephone lines. This represents a new application for the ControlPoint(TM) solutions that was not initially targeted by this ILEC at the time of their recent contract award to NHC. NHC's ILEC customer no. 1 has already validated this application in three of their central offices. Surpassing their original request for proposal with this new application suggests additional opportunity for the application of ControlPoint(TM) solutions within this ILEC. NHC is also exploring additional new applications and business models with its current ILEC customers and other prospects, developing ControlPoint(TM) solutions to automate every aspect of their networks.

"The future is looking bright for the Company," said NHC President and CEO Sylvain Abitbol. "Expanding our opportunities within this ILEC's network opens the door to automate almost their entire network."

Given the rate at which the ILEC customer no. 2 is deploying NHC's ControlPoint(TM) solutions, the Company expects this largest U.S. ILEC to continue to place orders for ControlPoint(TM) solutions over the term of their multi-year contract with the company.
